Chapter 236 of Jujutsu Kaisen sparked outrage online after it appeared to reveal the killing of Satoru Gojo at the hands of Sukuna. The author entirely turned the script after setting up a triumph for Gojo in the fight against Sukuna, revealing that the latter had won the encounter. Satoru Gojo’s fall severely affected the Jujutsu Sorcerers because he was their strongest fighter. Currently, Satoru Gojo is conspicuously absent from both anime and manga.

While it appears that Gojo was killed by Sukuna, the Jujutsu Kaisen community continues undeterred, concocting ideas about the great sorcerer’s future return. There are certainly ways for Gojo to return to the series and please his followers once more, but it may come at a high price that will forever impact the plot.

Gojo Satoru’s Death in Jujutsu Kaisen Shocked Fans

The epic 13-chapter struggle between Gojo and Sukuna lasted 13 weeks, first convincing supporters of its importance in the plot. Gojo was paired against Ryomen Sukuna shortly after his release from prison. It was clear that Gojo was dominating the entire fight against The King of Curses.

Sukuna was on the ropes the entire time, and even on defense, Gojo performed considerably better than Sukuna. Sukuna, on the other hand, not only managed to overcome the deficit, but he also managed to kill Gojo. While supporters expected him to beat the King of Curses, Satoru Gojo was defeated and died.

Fans were crushed to see their most loved character die at the hands of Sukuna. Many theories were devised that would result in bringing the fan-favorite back to life. However, there is one theory that may be the most valid notion, but it might require Gojo to sacrifice his most valued possession to return to Jujutsu Kaisen.

Gojo Might Have to Sacrifice His Powers To Come Back

In the world of anime, situations like bringing someone back to life or becoming overly powerful require a huge sacrifice from the character to balance the storyline. This has been seen in a lot of anime and the equivalent sacrifice for Gojo’s return would be his powers. Now that doesn’t mean that he might have to sacrifice all of his powers, but coming back to life may result in him losing his cursed technique or even his six eyes.

This theory makes the most sense as it would not only bring the fan-favorite character back but it would also help in making the story more interesting. This way, he might not be the strongest sorcerer anymore and this would give Yuji a chance to become the strongest sorcerer and shift the focus on the protagonist.

However, this is just a theory and nothing is certain until Gege Akutami, the mangaka of Jujutsu Kaisen confirms Gojo’s return. It will surely be interesting to see whether he brings the most loved character back and if he does, how they make it possible.
